Rain pools in the street Cold bites into your veins Every face has a scar Getting sucked down into the tar Her hands are swollen and bruised Blown out blue tattoos A cigarette for comfort Solace in her bottle of booze She has a story to tell Another personal hell The whole city is deaf to a person like her Everyday we struggle to stay afloat In a concrete sea that could swallow us down Hold my hand and hold your breath on dry land So we don't drown Struggle to stay afloat in a concrete sea Struggle to stay afloat in a concrete sea Hold my hand and hold your breath on dry land So we don't drown

Dealers that have the tender A community lives in fear Untouchable men of violence Wrecking lives and selling gear Your ma won't sell her body Your bro won't steal your score You won't turn on the light in the middle of the night And find a hard-man at your door Pills and powders, it's just a lark Have some fun, there's no harm done Not your family being ripped apart Dealers that have the tender A community lives in fear Untouchable men of violence Wrecking lives and selling gear Fairtrade coffee, union dues Might cleanse your conscience But can't you see the truth? No-one 'round your way ever had to dodge a stray bullet

7am phone calling Backup Loader needed to come in Still in the scratch I need the cash though Shake last night's beer off Lace up my steel toes Get out the door Oh what a pointless waste of labour Oh what a fucking waste of time Oh what a pointless waste of labour Build it up, just to tear it down Band was a no-show Handy few quid though My effort wasted But Extra Stout I can taste it

Nobody under 50 Undertakers are busy Grocery closed after 80 years All of the chemists do okay Where is the hope in a rundown town? Where can it be found? Smack is getting a foothold Five bookies on high street Queues out the welfare door On signing-on day Shop fronts like rotten teeth Street names ancient memories of industry This town is left to ghosts and decay I wish it wasn't this way I'm looking for hope Hope in a rundown town

about

Dublin gritty melodic punks GRIT are gathering pace fast despite their short existence, having hooked the punk scene with their catchy 6 track demo.GRIT have seemingly came out of nowhere, with members of GRIT more known for their crust/hardcore punk bands of the past. With a sound resembling certain predecessors of early European hardcore punk with a slight oi! vibe. GRITs socially charged female fronted straight-up punk rock that hits hard standing parallel with earlier punk of the late '70s or early '80s. Sharp cutting punk riffs driven by powerful beats with plenty of melody in vocals carried on a bed of choruses which ‘ouuhs’ and ‘aaahs’ in the background. The call for ‘Ghost Estates’ to be pressed in wax was clear and loud.
